The Mission of Missions

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witness to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.  (Acts 1:8, NKJV)

The people of First Norfolk have taken God’s great call to live the mission as something greater than a romantic notion or a warm, fuzzy feeling while traveling internationally. They have embraced the great command to love God and love others and in doing so, they have accepted the challenge to live the mission as they are mobilized by the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

We pray that you are able to see more than a gathering of events, journeys, and overall good deeds.  We pray that you find a fellowship of people (aka “the church”) who are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as Acts 1:8 calls them to do. As you read, connect the dots of ministry needs with those who are called to serve (every missionary follower of Christ).

OUTREACH FOR CHRIST TOY DRIVE

Outreach for Christ is a local ministry that shares the gospel by serving those in our community with various needs. They serve in nursing homes, jails, operate a food pantry, offer Bible studies, and more. At Christmas, Outreach for Christ provides toys for children through their Christmas Outreach. We are collecting toys and gifts for children up to age 18. Please bring unwrapped new toys and gifts to the collection area outside the Live the Mission Center.

DISASTER RELIEF

Our Disaster Relief ministry allows us the opportunity to serve communities during times of crisis.  The ultimate goal is to be able to share the love of Christ through sharing the gospel. To participate in Southern Baptist Disaster Relief ministries, volunteers must complete 4 hours of training in advance of service and have a criminal background check after completing training. After successful completion of these two items, a uniform and identification badge will be issued.
